A dealer who organised a drive-by shooting as part of an argument over drugs has been jailed for 11 years.
Declan Madigan, aged 28, from Nottinghamshire, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply, possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life, and to using another person to hide the firearm.
Madigan, of Winthorpe Road, Newark, was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday.
The court heard he organised for shots to be fired at a house in Watford Road, Apsley, after an argument around Madigan's drug dealing.
They were designed to intimidate the resident - who was not in at the time - as Madigan felt they had wronged him.
The shooter fled on a motor scooter, and Madigan persuaded a friend to look after the shotgun. He was tracked down by DNA evidence.
